A September 30 Office of the Inspector General report on the Interior Department’s offshore renewable energy programs found that the regulations are contradictory. The office recommended that regulations be finalized, that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement work together on inspection protocols, and that regulatory oversight authority granted to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management be reviewed because it might present a conflict of interest. The report urged the issues be addressed before the Cape Wind project begins construction.
